Jun arrives in Hong Kong from mainland China, hoping to be able to earn enough money to marry his girlfriend back home. He meets the streetwise Qiao and they become friends. As friendship turns into love, problems develop, and although they seem meant for each other they somehow keep missing out.Edit Translation
Much could be observed, praising a lot to me. For example, a new genre force and power of persuasion is breathed as in the conscious, explicit resource to the classic Hollywood melodrama, which degenerated into its home country for a long time to hollow, cynical façade. As the film itself has always reflected on popular commercial culture - and they have not condemned damn nor naively celebrates. Or how the film discreetly tells a political parable under the guise of a love story. In terms of craftsmanship, virtually every category of Tian mi, which was awarded nine Hong Kong Movie Awards in 1997 - and rightly so - could be positively mentioned. - Last but not least, the outstanding actors, especially "King of Canton-Pop", Leon Lai and (languishing!) Maggie Cheung - about which only I could talk about each page.
